Thai VietJetAir starts Thailand-Vietnam scheduled flights

Thai VietJetAir (VZ, Bangkok Suvarnabhumi) has commenced scheduled operations following a near three-year delay Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh, the vice-president of VietJet Aviation Joint Stock Company, has said.

Speaking to The Bangkok Post, Binh said the carrier was looking to issue an official statement in the coming two months with own regular flights to begin shortly after. In the meantime, Thai VietJetAir has assumed its parent VietJetAir's Bangkok Suvarnabhumi to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City routes before expanding to Da Nang, Dalat, and Haiphong later this year. No plans for domestic Thai services have yet been revealed.




Though operational for over a year, Thai VietJetAir has only carried out charter flights between Thailand and Vietnam for and on behalf of tour operators. It currently has a pair of A320-200s on its books.


Just prior to their original planned launch of regular services in March last year, former majority shareholder and Thai national, Somphong Sooksanguan, moved to divest both himself and Kan Air (K8, Chiang Mai) parent, Kannithi Aviation, of their combined 51% stake in the carrier. Somphong blamed his exit on differences in managerial style with that of 49% shareholder, VietJetAir (VJ, Hanoi).
